troops will have left all of afghanistan or be in support roles. >>> yesterday's handover took place in helmand province. it's a taliban stronghold where more foreign troops have died than in any other province. cbs news correspondent mandy clark was there for the changing of the guard. >> reporter: helmand province has been the deadliest battleground in afghanistan. nearly half of all coalition deaths have happened here. president obama's surge focussed on turning that around. the proichbs's capital saw troop movement of a different kind with the official handover to afghan forces. one sign of how fragile this security situation is the ceremony was not announced in advance. out of fear the taliban would strike. the new commander of coalition forces in afghanistan acknowledged the heavy price american and british troops paid for the progress made here. >> there are some voices that are raised to question whether this sacrifice has been worth it. those of white house wear this uniform have one answer. yes! >> reporter: it was certainly a proud moment for the afghan
, you know, i read sebastian younger. he will go to afghanistan and embed himself. while i'm embedded in vegas, he's in afghanistan. good for him. what else? i read it all that comes out. everything. i love "the hunger games." which is odd. it was really good. >> right. do you see yourself more comfortable now as opposed to other authors? >> my friends aren't -- i have a lot of writing friends. overall, you know, i don't know that many screen writers. i don't live in l.a. were they are all there. yeah, you know, i -- i don't have a lot of close friends who are writers. i have a couple. guy named matthew pearl, he's a good friend of mine. a guy named joe who has a book out. wonderful gook. he's great. a few other local writers. but yeah, there's not -- you know, i don't -- you know, we don't sit around in turtle necks and drink coffee. not that speed. yeah. but -- yeah. >> we're starting to come up on the time. as we say, ben is going to be doing a book signing after this. there are other events, obviously with late nights. i want to ask you just a couple more questions. what we would
, mullah omar was dead. we're following the story. we go live to kabul, afghanistan. david, this one has got people wondering. what's going on? >> reporter: well, the news first broke by an afghan television station and then later in the day, cnn and other media received a message by an individual claiming to be a top taliban commander. that individual said that mullah omar had died of heart failure last week and a successor had already been named. the taliban, like you said, later came out and said they have been the victim of a hacking and their phones and emails have been tapped. in fact this message was phoney. cnn doesn't have any confirmation of the sort. we spoke with nato official and they have no operational knowledge on the ground. so the whereabouts of mullah omar are unknown. last believed to be in pakistan, where taliban militants have launched attacks across that border against troops down in the southern region. it's those southern and eastern regions of afghanistan that have experienced some of the highest levels of attacks. and this all comes at a very interesting time.
. we're told that by military officials that he'd never been deployed to either iraq or afghanistan, and, in fact, had applied for conscience shs objective status, saying he was a muslim. >> thank you very much, pete williams, i know you'll keep us updated. >>> a lot going on in washington, d.c., clearly, including the ongoing news conference with the gop freshmen. we have the senators also taking to the floor, and there you have the chamber, where we are going to be seeing a vote a little later on today, and we're going to be hearing from john boehner early in the afternoon, so this could be an extremely consequential day in this debt fight in washington. keep it here on msnbc. i love that my daughter's part fish. but when she got asthma, all i could do was worry ! specialists, lots of doctors, lots of advice... and my hands were full. i couldn't sort through it all. with unitedhealthcare, it's different. we have access to great specialists, and our pediatrician gets all the information. everyone works as a team. and i only need to talk to one person about her care. we're more than
the war in afghanistan, we must fix the politics." host: back to the phones and the public's discussion, asheville, n.c., george -- joyce. caller: we do not have any say in what congress says it through our president except through voting. i call them all the time and make my voice heard. sometimes they are not nice to me. i think that the biggest problem in this country are the illegals that come in here to of our country and a protest. the taxes of this country are taking care of them. they will hit the streets in georgia this time. arizona and other states. host: you said you had had contact? caller: just about my complaints with social security and medicare. host: their response to you? caller: they just listen to me sometimes. sometimes they say thank you for calling. host: you have spoke to them on the phone? caller: i was complaining more about illegals, i think that is the biggest problem of the nation. host: i am going to let you go now. we have this biggest -- we have this twitter message. host: auburn they'll, florida, you are on washington journal. caller: they never listen
with a situation like 9/11 or the war in iraq or afghanistan are terrorism? what if there is unforeseen event that would force government to spend more money than it takes an? guest: the legislation would have to be written to be including situations when we get like that. i am no expert on the u.s. economy so i want to put that disclaimer out there right now. but we are spending more than we're taking in and it is not sustainable. we cannot continue down this path. when you have the medicare board of trustees coming out in the month of may and releasing a report that says, if medicare is not reformed in 2024, it will be bankrupt, it is irresponsible for washington not to do anything about their when you know you are facing this problem. we need to deal with that. we need to do some entitlement reform across the board. we cannot balance the u.s. budget by cutting discretionary spending. host: i realize that this is still coming together so the information continues to evolve. but based on what we hear this morning, it is a $1.4 trillion increase in the debt limit immediately. based on misinfo
and afghanistan, and i think history will show that we were right to get into those. and we've had fairly good results so far from them though they've been very costly. >> i just always think it's important to tlook at history to then bring us to the president. as we come back here to 2011 and specifically your role, sir, in this. i know you're a staunch conservative. are you able to lead the way and compromise and the tea party are watching your every move, sir? >> well, it looks like this is going to be thrown over into gsh if it passes, it will be thrown over to the finance committee and we'll see what we can do to do this without raise taxes but also by doing appropriate cuts that really should happen. and by reforming some of these programs so that they work better, cost less. that will be less government. >> a lot of americans would agree with you, but are you willing to compromise given that you're up for re-election and you have tea party republicans looking closely at you. >> they have to be worked out but they have to be made on a basis that makes sense and not raise taxes. we're tax
the paper work, without a court order. while they were in iraq or afghanistan, they were the victim families. this is an area we want to look into. host: and their relation to david petraeus? guest: she is married to him. host: maria, a republican. you are on. caller: my husband and i both watch c-span regularly, and we are concerned about this agency created with a half of a $1 billion budget. our question is how much duplication is taking place? he mentioned a few minutes ago that hundreds of people have already been hired. could you let us know the duplication of these consumer protection services that this new agency is supposed to do, and how, and what is going to happen to these other employees within the federal government? guest: well, that is a very good question. consumer protection used to be in various different agencies. the fed had consumer, occ -- all of these different agencies. consumer protection was often a secondary thought, a third thought, or not even thought about at all. that is why regulators did not in any way most to curb the abuses in the sub-prime lending, which
